PIA National President Andy Harris addressed a meeting of the board of PIA of New Jersey on Monday, June 10. He touched on several topics, including some of the lessons agents learned as a result of Superstorm Sandy. The PIA National president also expressed frustration with the advertising campaigns of the direct writers.

“I have had it with the misconception being purposely created by direct writer advertising that customers do not value agents and price is all that matters,” he said. “Studies and surveys prove that customers do value agents. They do prefer to do business with agents. Price is not the main determining factor.”

The appearance at the PIA of New York and New Jersey convention was part of a whirlwind, nationwide series of speeches and meetings at PIA affiliates now underway by Harris and PIA National Executive Vice President & CEO Ron Von Haden.
